Kannada film Aithalakadi will be a hit?

Kannada trade pundits are predicting that Aithalakadi, with 108 Sandalwood stars in guest roles, will be a box-office hit.

When kannada comedy actor ‘Bullet’ Prakash announced last year that he would make a movie with himself in the lead, there was more than a smirk on the faces of most film folks. But from the very first day, Aithalakadi has been generating a lot of buzz.

Though kanada comedians Rangayana Raghu and ‘Bullet’ Prakash play the lead roles in the film, there are 108 senior actors in guest roles. Some of the top stars like Ravichandran, Sudeep, Jaggesh, Vijay and Vijaya Raghavendra will be seen in important scenes. Darshan and Puneeth Rajkumar launched the film and even those scenes are incorporated in the film.

Cameraman-turned-director J G Krishna has used his good offices to bring in almost every well-known actor to be part of the film for free. ‘Bullet’ Prakash, who is also co-producing the film, hasn’t spared any efforts either. The songs are a hit since their release a month ago and industry pundits are predicting that this film will have an opening equal to the film of a top star. Raghu plays a director and Prakash his assistant in the film. All the actors appearing as guests in this film therefore appear as themselves. Kannada actress Neetu plays the love interest.
